South Bay Education Alliance (SBEA) is a nonpartisan organization created to ensure Excellence in Education remains a top priority in our schools. 

We do support diversity of thought in the classroom and high standards for students of all ethnicities. 
We do support teaching students how to think but not what to think.  
We do not support the new educational ideology that prioritizes equal outcomes (equity) ahead of excellence and seeks to divide us on the basis of race.

ALERT!

A CRT BASED CURRICULUM IS BEING DISCUSSED AT THE AUGUST 24 MEETING

RBUSD continues the process of integrating the tenets of Critical Race Theory into the curriculum.

At the next board meeting they will be discussing how they intend to go through the process of integrating the curriculum of Learning for Justice, which offers nearly 900 courses which reinforce concepts of Critical Race Theory.

We ask everyone to pay close attention and also state their objection to this and any association with an organization that endorses CRT principles.

The school board continues to deny they are bringing CRT to our community. It is time to let them know that our community IS informed and DOES NOT AGREE with the concepts promoted by Learning for Justice.

The words Critical Race Theory do not need to be stated when all of concepts are apparent.  Click on this link and read the first paragraph to give you a sense of their purpose. Does this sound like an unbiased organization? 
 
In our work with educators, schools, students and communities, Learning for Justice seeks to uphold the mission of the Southern Poverty Law Center: to be a catalyst for racial justice in the South and beyond, working in partnership with communities to dismantle white supremacy, strengthen intersectional movements and advance the human rights of all people.
 
To give a sense of their perspective and teaching methods:
 
 
Continuous discussions of "identity" is an integral part of changing the way children think. These identity discussions are woven throughout much of the recommended coursework. 

No child is too young to discuss their gender, race, religion or socioeconomic status. This module provides an example of how they train young children to look at people not based upon who they are on the inside, but what they look like on the outside. 

Critical Race Theorists do not believe in being "color blind" and treating everyone equally. People must be categorized and children's thinking needs to morph towards looking at skin color first.  
 
Notice how they prod students to make assumptions about people based upon their appearance.  
 
Since when do we train children to make assumptions about others? This runs completely opposite to how most people raise their children.
 
Notice also words such as: "dominant traits" and multiple references to religion. The question every parent / community member should be asking - Why is a school district incorporating this into the curriculum? There is a purpose for these types of lessons. The ultimate goal with programs such as this is not to educate, but to indoctrinate with a different mentality and moral code - which most likely does not align with traditional American values such as treating everyone with equally and with respect.  
 
 
Very important for everyone to read this article, written by a member of the Teaching Tolerance Advisory Board. In this article she references teaching as activism and notes how powerful teaching is.  Teaching certainly is powerful if teachers are permitted to incorporate their politics into the classroom and veer away from teaching towards the indoctrination of that teachers' particular viewpoint.  

Note how she addresses how teachers can apply Marxist theory into the classroom. While people may think this cannot happen, everyone should be concerned that when curriculum from companies such as Learning for Justice is brought into a school district, the Pandora's box is then open for teachers to adopt what they wish, without parent knowledge or consent.  

CALL TO ACTION

Insist that school board members explain why RBUSD is even considering the integration of curriculum from a CRT aligned organization when at the same time RBUSD denies they are integrating CRT into the curriculum.
Discussions of identity, privilege, social justice, intersectionality are CRT concepts and do not belong in our schools.

Spotlight On Teachers Doing Bad Things
Without Any Consequences
From Our School Board and School Administration
4th Grade Teacher 's Reading Curriculum

A 4th grade teacher assigned a BLM instructional library to her students with the below videos to her class in the last school year. There is no question this is entirely inappropriate.

The ultimate goal is to make every discussion about race. Over and over and over again until children are indoctrinated with a new way of thinking and looking at the world. People who teach CRT want children to judge people not based upon who people are on the inside, but upon their outward appearance.

A Kids Book About Racism - Note how this author says that racism happens ALL THE TIME.

Peaceful Fights for Equal Rights - Training and nurturing children to become activists and resist is another basic tenet of CRT. This is a classical indoctrination video - encouraging children to boycott, march, make buttons and stickers - and saying these phrases over and over again.

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
WHY IS OUR SCHOOL BOARD AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION ALLOWING THIS AS RBUSD CURRICULUM?
WE ADVISE PARENTS TO ALWAYS MONITOR THE GOOGLE DRIVE ASSIGNMENTS
CALL TO ACTION

Every parent needs to contact the school board and demand this type of content is stripped out of the curriculum. The School Board needs to discuss what type of disciplinary action is taken when teachers promote CRT in the classroom.
Even if these teachers get away with this for a short period of time, the psychological damage on our children may NEVER go away. Speak up before it is too late and your child's psyche and emotional health is permanently changed by teachers who believe they are the parents, not you.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
